Known since before written records, Silver is an element that has found multiple uses. Jewelry, cutlery and coinage are obvious. Less well known are it’s uses in batteries, mirrors, and antibacterial bandages. It’s the best electrical and thermal conductor of all the elements and has many applications because of these qualities. Without Silver there would have been no film-based photography. Come and explore all these and more with the Exploratorium's Everything Matters - Tales From the Periodic Table: Silver, with your host, Ron Hipschman.
In the spirit of amplifying the Black Lives Matter movement and to avoid any appearance of having appropriated that title, our series of talks formerly called Everything Matters: Tales from the Periodic Table will now be called, simply, Tales from the Periodic Table. Please excuse the former title on videos made in the past.
